Are you really that naive, vat does not go to the EU but into the exchequer.
Vat will not drop when we finally esit or do you think that it will go to the NHS in a big red bus.

It’s starting to get a little crazy talking to you people.

The UK is behind a significant share of the VAT revenue flowing into the EU budget.

In each year from 2000 to 2014, the UK's contribution has accounted for between 15% and 21% of this revenue.

The only crazies are those who believe in the big red bus or that the UK population will benefit by 1p from the nett saving on contributions to the EU.
Brexit is about the UK not the EU or have you forgotten what it was you voted for.

Not 1p but £2.5 billion. If you are wrong sometimes it is best to say nothing more rather than add to your stupidity.

I repeat the only stupid people are those who believe that the UK populace will see any benefit from the nett saving in contributions to the EU.
Come back when you can prove otherwise in 3, 5 or 10 years.
It may have escaped your notice that for yet another quarter since the vote UK economic activity declined with the growth figure reduced again.
Try blaming that on the EU.

One thing is definite the users of that bus are more intelligent and speak more sense that Boris and his gang on their red bus.
They also have a better understanding of finance .

Surprised our Brexiteers haven't been on here celebrating next month's UKIP leader, code name 'October'.

Must be rapid occupational burnout holding Theresa's feet to the Hard Brexit fire.

I thought their Poundland look was more appropriate. But to me the new one looks more like they are ripping off the London Olympics lion.

How fitting they chose a picture of a big cat to represent a bunch of pussies.

Poundland :lol:

New one with the lion face is nice, but perhaps they did adapt the Olympic one.
